Daher Posts Strong 2022 Deliveries
After significant efforts in the fourth quarter, Vom announced on Wednesday that it had shipped 73 of its TBM and Kodiak series in 2022. The manufacturer also reports that it has a backlog of 100 orders for 2023 and 2024 for its single-engine turboprops, with the new TBM 960 and Kodiak 900 models debuting later in the year.
While the company experienced many of the same supply chain challenges that have plagued the entire aviation industry, the team’s efforts have overcome these obstacles.
“Last year’s business performance benefited from the dedicated efforts of our manufacturing, supply and sales teams on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as our firm commitment to address the ongoing supply chain challenges and job shortages in the airline industry,” said Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of Vom Aircraft Division, in a statement.
Chabbert also credited the launch of the FAA- and EASA-certified TBM 960 and FAA-blessed Kodiak 900 with “invigorating” sales over the next two years. FLYING demoed the TBM 960 for Q3 issue last year – and the Kodiak 900 will be featured in our next We Fly report in issue 934, which is currently on its way to subscribers.
North America continues to be the strongest market for Voms sales in the TBM line, with 40 units despatched to these customers in 2022, followed by 11 deliveries to customers in Europe.
The Kodiak 100 Series III made up the numbers for this model with 16 deliveries to a mix of corporate flight departments, private owners and special mission operators in North America and one unit to a European customer.
Official delivery numbers for the industry will be released in the upcoming 2022 General Aviation Manufacturers Association report on February 22nd.
A new base
Therefore, a new US headquarters in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., in late January, strengthening its position as a global aerospace company. The move consolidates the company’s administration and management functions into a single Florida location, which is close to its TBM and Kodiak service facility in Pompano Beach (KPMP) as well as its newly acquired aerostructures facility in Stuart (KSUA).
From the new location – convenient to Ft. Lauderdale (KFLL) and Miami International (KMIA) airports – Therefore, further expansion in the North American market is expected, not only in the manufacture of aircraft and aircraft components, but also in logistics and services.
